Why are we still calling them reverse retros and not orters? Come on, board, get your head in the game.

Saw this on Twitter, so I put together this mockup...

Spoiler

 

 

It's not at all the direction I wanted them to go, though it's definitely growing on me.

It seems so random for the Stars to go with Lime. They've already got a great shade of green, why not use that?

"Come and Take It" is an ill-advised motto weeks after the Lightning did precisely that. Now I'll probably find out that those were the last words of some support-staff guy who just died and everyone will get mad at me.

Hopefully, the green looked lime green to the person who saw the jersey, and not that they're actually using a new shade.

I think their shade of green doesn't contrast well enough with black to be legible from far away. I was playing around with a concept idea and came across that situation. Glad to hear it will be a brighter shade of green. Now to figure out where that "multiple parallel lines" detail will be...

 

EDIT: "Come And Take It" is from here:

I think the alt will contain a neon green outline of the Dallas skyline on the jersey somewhere.

 

Looking at how they've teased it in that video teaser, I don't think they included the skyline for nothing. It's gotta have meaning.

 

The Mavericks use it, I could see the Stars join in to make that a part of their city-wide identity.

Glad the collar isn't going to be annoying.

 

I'm hyped.

Looking at some other mockups, I think they have us tricked. Looks like the thin line pattern might be on the back/top half of the collar, along with the green trim. I think the reason  they only showed the bottom of the collar is because there’s a main design feature at the top...

PHEW. For a while there I was worried we had a Texas team without the state of Texas front and center. How else would we know where they're from?

Yeah, when I read that description this is the first thing that came to mind:

I'm sure they won't be this bad, but it sounds like the numbers will be similar.

Wondering if it is just the current shade but it lime was just the description used.

Jersey shown on left side of Dallas Stars' website... @ldconceptswas very very close

 

https://www.nhl.com/stars

 

Black/lime green logo with lime green Texas outline, two lime green stripes on torso and sleeves, black pants, two lime green stripes on the socks. Kind of look like black and lime green fire fighter uniforms for a Tron world.

so it's glow-in-the-dark?  The teasers icethetics had were black and white which make it seem like it's glow-in-the-dark material.  Unless they had just edited the photos.  I wonder how it will look during a game.  I'm guessing just black and white which is kind of boring.  It's hard to tell from the lighting but i guess i'm wrong.

neat new approach and I can appreciate trying something new, but i dunno... kinda meh for me.

 

The parts i do like are the beveling effect with the holes in the numbers and the star on the collar.

I like it. It's not an automatic favorite of mine, but it looks nice and the jersey is quite vibrant, which is good. Not great, but certainly not bad.

Not glow-in-the-dark; there's just green lighting. I'd bet it's the shade they're using on their site right now.

yeah, i was basing off of the teasers on icethetics which must have been just black and white images.

I want to hate it, but I just love it.

 

It's awful and loud and crazy and everything a fun third jersey could be.
